Preserving fertility


My husband is fairly certain that he doesn’t want to have any more children but I hadn’t really closed that off. With chemotherapy you can often go into menopause, especially if you’re closer to 40 or already closer to menopause. I thought that that was what was going to happen and that was pretty traumatic for me. Just having that decision taken away from me by another decision that I made, made me feel a little bit uneasy and very disappointed. It's not because necessarily we would have more children but because decision is no longer mine. That was a bit challenging. Since that point, I’ve been tested and apparently I’m not at that stage yet so that’s been a bit of a relief.
